Crimson Streets was one of the first websites to feature my work, and they have been great to me, even when some of my stories didn’t work for their website.
Moving forward, they have released their first physical magazine, Crimson Streets #1: A Story A Week and Other Tales. It contains detective stories, weird tales, and nearly everything between the two. Moreover, it contains fantastic illustrations. (Also, contains my short story, “Confession.”)

With these posts here, I plan on editing and re-posting the ones that get more than average attention, or ones that I personally enjoy. Without further adieu, here we go…
